FRONT-final

From Amazon.co.uk

What makes it good: This is a witty cocktail of a novel:’Trainspotting’ meets ‘Matilda’ meets ‘Nineteen Eighty-four’…In fact, there is even a moment in the novel where the protagonist, Jonathan Hutton, actually takes a trippy ride down a glass elevator filled with cheese! There are some extremely funny and memorable moments in this novel, one of my favourite being ‘the cracker incident’ and without giving too much away, it’s worth reading just to visualise a drunk mother’s violent attempt to make a child part of their own intoxicated imperfect world. I disagree that this is a utopian novel; the main character may well display tremendous strength and hope thorugh desperate times, but the not so distant future, is in fact, an oblique, obsolete, and dire time for mankind. Don’t be fooled by Misdaq’s humour, there is plenty of dark satire in this novel, and it’s damn good.

What makes it special?: The novel is a poetic journey of a young mans search for himself. It is written very well, at times, lyrical, and the imagery and descriptions of the world the reader sees through Hutton’s eyes, is like a Dali painting. There are some very very funny moments in this book where you think ‘what the F***? is that possible?’ for example, the way Jonathan becomes a crack addict- very unusual. Expect the unexpected.

What limits it: the reader’s imagination.
